As the session is slowly coming to an end, we look back and can truly say that the Lord has led us thus far. Brother Mario Alvarado took the morning worship on the topic “Personal Influence Is Power.” He spoke on the parable of the talents which illustrates why some are saved while others are condemned. The Bible tells us that the servant who put the money to good use was saved, but the servant who hid the money was condemned.

A new week started with a glorious morning. Sunshine, fresh air, and the delegates rested well. This morning Brother C. Matyas of Austria, presented the morning worship. He spoke on the topic of "True Humility."  As Jesus ascended to heaven finishing His mission on this earth, He left a handful of unlearned lowly disciples to accomplish a task beyond their ability and talent. These men learned of Jesus something that was the key to their success.

“He that oppresseth the poor, despiseth his Maker, but he that dealeth kindly with the good, honors God” (Proverbs 14:31).

Until that moment, he had never sold anything in his life, but he understood that the call to literature evangelism was divine, so he worked in several locations as a missionary of the printed page.

Beginning as the poorest and most forgotten place in the country, São Paulo is today not only the city, but the state, that never sleeps. It is also the state that is hosting the General Conference's 23rd Delegation Session and Public Meetings.

São Paulo city, the capital of the state bearing the same name, was so obscure that it was even born in seclusion. The location where it was founded was not just invisible to the eyes of those who came from the ocean, but it was also protected by a massive natural wall, which is known as the Serra do Mar [Mountain Range of the Sea]. Viewed from below, this impressive ridge seems to cover the horizon, as if hiding another world.
